The Head of the Kuta Police Department, Kompol I Nyoman Gatra confirmed that as part the Covid-19 Handling Task Force in the Kuta area, the officers have created a station at the Kuta Market I to help them supervise the implementation of prevention protocols around the area easier while handing out food aids to vaccinated citizens. “We decided to create a station here because this market is right on a public road, which makes it easier to supervise the implementation of prevention protocols during this partial lockdown.” Kompol Gatra said on Thursday (29/7).

During their operation, Gatra instructed his units to sing and dance with the nearby citizens while distributing food aids from the government. He explained that each citizen is required to show proof of a Covid-19 vaccine and ID before receiving food aids. “We want to try a different approach in enforcing prevention protocols to the people, so we might not seem so scary to them.” Kompol Gatra added.

This program was initiated to encourage people to participate in the Covid-19 vaccination program in the Kuta area. “This food aid is a form of reward from the government for the people who supported the government’s effort to overcome this Covid-19 pandemic by distributing the vaccine to achieve herd immunity as soon as possible.” Kompol Gatra concluded. However, he admitted that the compliance level of Kuta residents to the prevention protocols is considered high as most of them were already wearing face masks properly in public areas. Apart from handing out food aids, the officers are also distributing free facemasks to by passers during their operation.

I don’t think it’s fair that unvaccinated people don’t get food. Food should be for everyone!!! I love Bali and pray for all its people. Blessings & love to all beings! ☮️✨❤️

@Wayan Bo, In a nutshell, "The program was initiated to encourage people to participate in the Covid-19 vaccination program in the Kuta area." The food aid is a form of reward.

As a reward in Romania rural people have received a free barbque local saussage treats for participating in the vaccine program despite hesitancy.

In a city in Java, live chicken was offered to senior citizens for participating in the vaccine program.
